2020 has been quite the year, and many people are looking for home decorating ideas for the fall to help welcome in the holidays. Here are six fall home decor ideas to put you in the holiday mood.
When Should You Start Decorating For Fall?
Technically, fall starts on September 22nd, but some people wait for a drop in the temperatures before they start to decorate. In Atlanta, this drop in temperatures may not happen until mid-October. There is no right or wrong time to start decorating for fall, but starting in October gives you enough time to enjoy the fall decor before you switch it for winter decor.
Fall Home Decor Ideas On A Budget
Getting your home fall-ready does not have to break the bank. There are plenty of budget-friendly fall decor ideas for 2020 that cost a little but make a big statement.
- Bring nature inside. If you live in a place where leaves are changing, you can create your own artwork with red, orange, and brown leaves. Pick up a few small pumpkins and put them around your home to add some color to your living room.
- Print out a few of your favorite fall-inspired sayings and frame them. You can find inexpensive frames at garage sales or antique markets, and repurpose them for fall decor. Hang these fall prints around your home.
- Think of the scents that automatically make you think of fall. Maybe it’s pumpkin, cinnamon, or apples. Buy candles with these scents and use them to fill your home with these smells. Another option is to put together a simmer pot with a few of your favorite fall smells.
How To Decorate Your Living Room In The Fall
If you do most of your living in your living room, it makes sense to focus your fall decorating ideas in this space. Depending on the size of your living room, there are many ways to make this space feel fall-ready.
- Pick the right colors. Some of the most popular fall decorating ideas for the living room center around color schemes. Adding accents of deep greens, browns, dark reds, and oranges to your living room can help set the tone for a fall-themed living room.
- Rethink traditional flower arrangements. If you love having fresh flowers in your living room, consider switching out your usual bouquet with orange, red, yellow, and green flowers. A few bouquets throughout your home can add color and freshness to your space.
- Get creative with fabrics. Take a few pillows or a chair cushion and reupholster them with fall-themed fabrics like plaid or dark floral prints. You don’t have to do your entire couch, but a few accent pieces can bring a fall-themed living room together.
For many Atlanta residents, fall symbolizes family, friends, good food, gratitude, and rest. A few small changes to your living space can help welcome in the cooler temperatures and help prepare you for the end of the year.
